One of the things that the Dell MD Storage Manager is a progress indicator for rebuild operations or any actions at all really, it’s fairly simple to do, but you have to use the command line tool SMcli.exe that comes with MD Storage Manager.

First navigate to:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Dell\MD Storage Software\MD Storage Manager\client

Then execute:

SMcli.exe {your.san.ip.address} -p {password} -c "show virtualDisk [\"name-of-vdisk\"] actionProgress;"

Obviously replace the curly braces with appropriate values - as well as the "name-of-vdisk" the square brackets are part of the syntax.

You should get an output similar to the below:
